With so many plant-based milk replacements, there’s no reason to support the offensive dairy industry.
In order to produce dairy milk, cows first need to give birth, just like humans and other animals that produce milk, cows only give milk during a period after giving birth to a baby.
Therefore, the first step in ‘making’ a dairy cow is often giving her fertility hormones.
While the usage of growth hormones in animal agriculture has been banned in the EU for years, there are no restrictions on the usage of fertility hormones. Dairy cows are now being bred to increase their milk production, but a downside of this development is that this has also increasingly led to fertility problems in cows.
To solve this problem, the usage of fertility hormones is widespread.
